Agnes Peynetsa's Frog Motif Seed Pot

Zuni Frog Motif Seed Pot by Agnes Peynetsa
Agnes Peynesta is one of Zuni's premiere potters.   She harvests her own clay, molds her work by hand, and makes her own paint.  However, unlike some of the strictly traditional potters, she uses an electric kiln for firing, a practice common in both Zuni and Acoma.    She has also done a very large frog-loaded beach ball size size version of this pot type priced at several thousand dollars
